The Quinta dos Espadeiros estate is a true oasis situated directly beside an urban environment. Located in the Almada municipality and dating back to the 17th century, this fabulous property represents a rich cultural heritage, made up of the stunning manor house and chapel set amidst a landscape of ponds and lagoons, surrounded by lush hills, gardens and trees. The main house and adjacent buildings measuring a total of 2.845m2 are set within this extensive seven-hectare property.
The main house is comprised of two distinct residential areas connected at the centre by an 18th century chapel.
The first section, an L-shaped building, features classic stone floors, wooden ceilings and beautiful Portuguese tiles. The impressive entrance hall is bathed in natural light and includes a rectangular pond crowned with four 18th century statues carved from Italian Carrara marble representing the four seasons. This area leads on to the grand salon, followed by the library, a generous bedroom and two bathrooms, as well as an ample storage space for housekeeping purposes. All of these rooms offer direct access to the lovely patios and gardens, where there is a large swimming pool built in the 1990s.
The large kitchen and charming dovecote are the oldest spaces in this part of the property. The total covered area of this building is 560m2.
The second section, to the west and measuring 720m2, occupies three floors. The top floor includes two bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room. The middle floor is comprised of a hall, another bathroom and a dining room complete with a cosy fireplace and leading on to another kitchen. All of these rooms open on to a fabulous terrace. The ground floor, which also accesses a charming terrace and gardens, features a hall, a large living room with a fireplace, as well as an additional bedroom and bathroom.
Located completely apart from the main structures, there is another set of buildings with a covered area of approximately 700m2, comprising a winepress and cellar, as well as an old barn that has been recently converted for residential use. This structure comprises two floors on the north side and one floor on the south side and includes a kitchen, an ample living room, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Finally, at the south end of the estate, there is a charming greenhouse made from double-glazed Saint Gobain glass and with an area of 815m2, built less than ten years ago by the French firm Richel. The greenhouse is equipped with modern temperature control systems and featuring a fluviarium complete with aquariums and state-of-the-art filtering and water renewal systems.
